Beulah signal held back


The Beulah Park simulcast signal was unavailable outside of Ohio on Wednesday after a disagreement between track management and local horsemen over their simulcast contract.

With no out-of-state betting, Beulah handled a total of $3,682 on its first race Wednesday. Beulah's 48-day meet, which began Tuesday, is scheduled to run through Dec. 20.

Correction: An earlier version of this article misstated the reason that Beulah Park's simulcast signal was not made available outside of Ohio on Wednesday. The Thoroughbred Horsemen's Group did not withhold permission for the signal to be sent out of state -- a right it does not have, according to the Ohio Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association.
